Gators' Marcus Roberson, 19, Busted For Four Loko Possession

Florida Gators defensive back Marcus Roberson was arrested for underage alcohol possession--a misdemeanor--in September, reports Rachel George of the Orlando Sentinel. The 19-year-old Ft. Lauderdale native was found with a bottle of Four Loko in a dormitory parking lot on the University of Florida campus. Huntley Johnson, Roberson's attorney, pleaded not guilty on his client's behalf.

As Andy Hutchins of Alligator Army points out, Roberson is unlikely to face further disciplinary action from the team, as the incident took place a month ago. In fact, Frankie Hammond Jr., another Gator recently cited for an alcohol-related offense, served as a team captain three days after Roberson's initial arrest.

Additionally, he notes Roberson's choice of beverage "means he is probably not completely acculturated to drinking alcohol that isn't neon-colored as of yet." Four Loko is a malted, caffeinated, carbonated, flavored alcoholic beverage.

In his freshman season with the Gators, Roberson has 18 tackles (13 solo). Rivals.com ranked him the No. 2 cornerback in his recruiting class, according to the Gators' official website.
